Pete & Kim initiated an East-er Bay BBQ over at Albany Bulb. It was pretty much the most perfect thing to do yesterday. The sun was warm, and the view of the bay and the city was amazing. The one easter goodie I was craving the most was there! I guess it must be a classic. A mini sandwich composed of a roll (preferably the Hawaiian kind), ham (can be honey baked or not, this one was), and dijon mustard. MMmmm MMmm Good!
The way the story of Albany Bulb goes is that it used to be a landfill. Then after that it was a homeless camp. Then a couple years ago the homeless were kicked out, and now it is kind of a nature area, with lots of old junk, and a spectacular view of the city. The area we were at has a neat little skate bowl and a built in barbeque.
Every day I take Charlotte to an off-leash dog park. Today, possibly because it is the first day of Spring, I had the urge to be somewhere nature-y. Fort Funston seemed too far, and Charlotte doesn’t behave at Bernal Hill, so Mclaren Park was the destination.
Charlotte had a blast running around on the grassy hills. In some places the grass was so deep I could only see her when she bounded up and over the grass. The wildflowers are blooming and Spring is in the air!
Charlotte went in the lake, but only up to her elbows. She was content standing on the shore and watching the other dogs swim about.
Its Spring and I’ve been bit by the crafty-knitty-redecoratey-paint the walls-redo the yard bug. We have been talking about getting a new couch for months, but it was never the #1 priority. When we were at Room & Board shopping for an office armoire, we decided to get the André Couch and Chair in Teton Pewter.
They arrived on Tuesday and really make the house feel like grown-ups live here.
